„And fully in keeping with the demagogic prejudices of the party, no A. R. F leader would seriously propose participating cooperatively in the struggle of the people of w:Turkey against the fascist regime there... While the A. R. F. reprints maps showing the borders of a supposed "Armenia" proposed in the unratified w:Treaty of Sèvres, the party's literature ignores the native population within the borders of this "Armenia." It should be pointed out that this population, consisting of w:Kurds, Turks, Lazes and others, exceeds six million. One wonders what kind of Armenia the A. R. F. envisions in which Armenians will be an absolute—if not minuscule—minority...“

„The world saw and understood that, when it comes to the normalization of the Armenian-Turkish relations, they have to deal not just with Armenia with its three million population, but with the ten million Armenians. And let no one ignore the fact that, contrary to any slogans, the Armenian nation is united in its goals and is strong with its sons and daughters.“

„There is a small area of land in Asia Minor that is called Armenia, but it is not so.“

—  William Saroyan American writer 1908 - 1981
Context: There is a small area of land in Asia Minor that is called Armenia, but it is not so. It is not Armenia. It is a place. There are only Armenians, and they inhabit the earth, not Armenia, since there is no Armenia. There is no America and there is no England, and no France, and no Italy. There is only the earth.
